While fans will simply need to wait and see how Pugh’s character will respond to that concern, something is for sure: Wilde has absolutely nothing however appreciation for the motion picture’s leading male. During her CinemaCon discussion, the filmmaker raved that Styles– who she’s been dating for more than a year– is “nothing short of a revelation in this part.”
And in February 2021, Wilde penned a sweet homage to the “As It Was” vocalist and thanked him for signing up with the movie.
“Little known fact: most male actors don’t want to play supporting roles in female-led films. The industry has raised them to believe it lessens their power (i.e financial value) to accept these roles, which is one of the reasons it’s so hard to get financing for movies focusing on female stories,” she composed onInstagram “Enter: @harrystyles, our ‘Jack.’ Not only did he relish the opportunity to allow for the brilliant @florencepugh to hold center stage as our ‘Alice,’ but he infused every scene with a nuanced sense of humanity.”
She included, “He didn’t have to join our circus, but he jumped on board with humility and grace, and blew us away every day with his talent, warmth, and ability to drive backwards.”
